About Austin, TX

Colorado River, Violet Crown, Lake Austin, Mount Bonnell, Hippie Hollow Park, Lady Bird Lake, Mansfield Dam

Austin is the Capital City of the state of Texas and it is considered the second largest capital in the U.S. The city is also named "Silicon Hills" due to the fact that many technology corporations have their development centers here. In the early1800, pioneers have started to populate the area along Colorado River. Austin is situated on the Colorado River and it is surrounded by three artificial lakes. The city is a cultural and economic location for five counties. It is the second safest city in the U.S based on F.B.I statistics. The name of the city honors the first secretary of state of the republic, Stephen F. Austin, who was also known as the "Father of Texas". Austin is also known as "The Live Music Capital of the World", thanks to the many live music venues that it hosts.1  

Mental Health in Austin

Texas ranks below the national average in the number of mental health professionals per 100,000 residents.2 As a result, the city of Austin is offering some community based services that aim to bring solutions and solace to the people who are suffering from a mental illness. The citizens of Austin can benefit from many services that aim to help children, veterans, families, and other segments of the population. People's Community Clinic is one of the best community clinics in Texas that offers pharmacy and lab services on-site. The aim of this clinic is to serve people who have little or no health insurance. Children, adults, and the elderly can benefit from these services.3 Please call 512-478-4939 for further information. Swan Songs are a non-profit organization that seeks to give peace to terminally ill patients. Swan Songs' initiative is to organize private concerts for individuals who suffer from a terminal illness. Individuals may request any musical genre or musician they enjoy. Patients may listen to their favorite music with their family and overcome their pain through this music.4

Current Initiatives

There are some pertinent initiatives that would improve mental services in Texas. The graduate education programs for behavioral health professionals should be expanded to include psychiatry, social work, psychology, nursing, and counseling. Some of the initiatives promote the idea of asking professional boards to gather data that will help identify specific ethnic, cultural, racial, and linguistic workforce shortages. The current initiatives also seek to receive investment for the advanced technology that is required for suicide prevention training.5
